Threats to Renekton with this build
|Fiora||Your harass is superior to hers. Your ultimate directly counters hers, she is squishy, and is hard countered by Ninja Tabi. Her riposte can be annoying, but it doesn't block your W. Your sustain is also superior to hers. Very easy lane. Invest in the early Ninja tabi, and you'll be fine. ------- Combo: E-AA-W-AA-AA-Q-AA-E-AA|
|Urgot||He has no ways of escaping your gap close which makes zoning very easy. Don't take too much harass level 2 and ALL IN level 3. Use the bush to run away so that he doesn't attack you as you run back. ------ Combo: E-AA-W-AA-Q-AA-E-AA.|
|Zed||His damage is really low early, so once he wastes his shadow, hard engage on him and make him burn flash and zone him. At level 6, if he ults you, just pop your ult and kill him. Your ult counters his. Similar to Yasuo, they belong in the mid lane, not top. ------ Combo: E-AA-W-AA-Q-AA-E-AA.|

Renekton is a lane bully. Plain and simple. He is meant to dominate the lane phase and use his advantage to press team fights hard in the mid game. He has high early damage, natural tankiness with his ultimate, and clears waves really easy making proxy farming an option if ahead.
PROS / CONS
x High damage throughout the game
x Easy Stun to land
x No mana costs/Reliable Spells
x Makes ganks easy/Escaping ganks easy
x Gets outscaled in the late game
x Attracts a lot of attention from enemy junglers
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction

Very standard runes for Renekton.
During the lane phase your goal is to bully your opponent and create a lead by outfarming or killing your laner. Once you hit level 3, you can go very aggressive and punish your opponent health bar for trying to get a minion with your dash combo. Once level 6, you have the ability to dive your enemy or even turn 2v1 fights into your favor. Main goal, get a lead.
Once you take turret, you should have quite the lead on your opponent. You can choose to pressure the lane knowing that you can escape or fight a 2v1 OR roam mid or bot and force fights. Since you'll have ignite/teleport, objective control is easy for you. Renekton is at his strongest in the mid game, and you have to be sure to take full advantage of it.
Meaning you have 4-5 items complete, you want to be grouped with your team so that you either catch someone out with your mobility and stun, or force team fights. If your laner isn't a strong splitter, you can go top lane and split push. Since you have teleport, you should be fine. Make sure your team understands that you are split pushing because as Renekton, you are ESSENTIAL to team fights. Chances are, you'll be the tankiest one that will have to engage.
During teamfights, your job is to go onto one of the carries (Mid & ADC). You'll maintain the focus of the enemy tanks and peel and soak up damage. That is your goal, to soak up as much damage as you can. As Renekton, you'll easily deal enough damage to be able to kill one of the carries, but your main focus is to draw as much attention as you can so that your team won't have to worry about major ultimates and skills since they were used on you which should make the team fighting in your favor. Don't dive too deep, you want to stay relatively near your team so that they have the ability to follow up.
TIPS AND TRICKS
This video shows how you can be creative with your Slice & Dice to create plays for your team.
This video shows how to properly use The Black Cleaver with Renekton kit, which is actually pretty simple.
Notice how he is constantly at 6 stacks throughout the fight.
